Not only are our staff friendly, efficient and dedicated, they come from a range of cultural and racial backgrounds – just like our residents.

True blue Aussies, Britons, Middle Easterns (we have staff with backgrounds that transverse the length and breadth of the Middle East, from Egypt to Jordan), Indonesians, Malaysians, Fijians, Filipinos, Eritreans, Ethiopians - they bring with them a global outlook.

A global outlook and a local commitment to the health and wellbeing of our most important stakeholders: our residents.

From administration and accounts, to maintenance, laundry, catering and clinical care, our team goes the extra mile to ensure our residents get the very best care possible.

Beneath their friendly, outgoing personalities is a serious commitment to raising the bar of care standards through continuous personal and professional improvement through in-house and off-site education and training.

For instance, our administration and activities staff are undertaking off-site training leading to advanced qualifications in Frontline Management, in addition to other courses aimed at upgrading their knowledge and skills.

Our Personal Carers and Nursing staff attend on-site and off-site workshops, seminars and courses on issues such occupational health and safety, gastro prevention, wound and pain management and palliative care.

The learning cycle never stops, ensuring improvements in care are continuous.

This, plus dedication and a philosophy of partnership with residents, families, fellow professionals, suppliers and the community at large, means at IRH we never stop trying to give our residents the very best we can in the autumn of their lives.



IRH believes in the philosophy of caring for its residents with encouragement, kindness and respect, while upholding their dignity, privacy and right to choice.

IRH encourages residents to have visitors. Indeed, we encourage families and friends to take part fully in the life of their loved ones and to take advantage of the facilities provided to enhance resident comfort.

Similarly, we also support and encourage residents to participate fully in the life of the community and to maintain friendships and activities outside of IRH.
